A Tea Garden in Tivoli – American Garden Design Inspired by the Way of Tea is a guide to garden design and flower arranging woven around the story of a unique garden in the Hudson Valley of New York.
This is an intriguing and accessible introduction to the Japanese garden aesthetic for the backyard gardener by veteran Zen and Tea student Bettina Mueller.
Drawing from her decades long study of the Japanese Tea tradition where great—even legendary—gardens are small by necessity, Bettina sets out to turn her 1/8 acre backyard in the small Hudson Valley village of Tivoli, New York into a private world of beauty and tranquility.
